Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Experimental data on in vitro mutagenicity on bacteria are available to nearly all representatives of the category of Guerbet alcohols. All tests are negative. Studies on mammalian cells are only available for the C16 Guerbet alcohol (CAS-No. 2425-77-6). Both a cytogenetic assay (chromosome aberration test) as well as a gene mutation study (HPRT test) are negative. Due to the similar structure with no additional functional groups these data can be cross-read to the whole category of Guerbet alcohols.

Endpoint Conclusion: No adverse effect observed (negative)

Justification for classification or non-classification

Avalaible data are conclusive but not sufficient for classification of 2 -decyltetradecanol with regard to mutagenicity / genotoxicity.
